London: England striker Wayne Rooney has attacked the "disgusting" British press for reporting on his bid to regain fitness while also taking a family holiday in Portugal.
Manchester United striker Rooney has gone to Portugal, where England are due to hold a pre-World Cup training camp, with his wife and two sons, as well as a couple of fitness experts in a bid to recover from the groin strain that saw him miss the final three matches of the Premiership season.
On his Twitter feed, Rooney wrote on Sunday: "Disgusting that English press have flew out to Portugal to follow me while I'm with my children."
Rooney last played for United on April 26 and is in Portugal for rehabilitation work, as well as a family holiday. The England forward also posted videos of himself exercising with his son, Kai.
